I have kind of changed my thinking about tipping. I have always tipped between 15-20% at restaurants, hair cuts/colors, manicures/pedicures.
Yesterday I paid 25 for a pedicure. I thought 25 an hour is not bad. And I know that person doesn't get that whole amount but still 25 is alot of money. And especially if you have something done by someone who owns the business (for example, a hair cut). Don't you think the owner/hairdresser has factored everything into her charges. So why do I have to tip 15-20% for a haircut when I'm already paying her a set amount, and it all goes to her.
I know most waiters/waitresses are paid very little and make most of their money on tips so I'm excluding them of this. I'm mainly talking about haircuts, manis and pedis.
